Les Houches-TSRC Protein Dynamics Workshop

June 7 - June 12, 2020
Ecole de Physique des Houches, France

This workshop is a forum for presenting, teaching and discussing results from the application of state-of-the-art experimental (including, but not limited to, optical spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, XFELs, electron microscopy, AFM and scattering methods), and theoretical and computational approaches to studying protein dynamics.

60th Anniversary Meeting of The British Biophysical Society

July 1 - July 3, 2020
University of Nottingham

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 60th Anniversary meeting of the British Biophysical Society. This is the largest national meeting of the British Biophysical Community.

Biophysics through time and Space: the BBS @ 60 University of Nottingham Wed 1st July – Fri 3rd July 2020 Further details and registration:

This edition is particularly special as it celebrates 60 years since the founding of the British Biophysical Society. We have an excellent programme of speakers representing biophysics from the picosecond to the evolutionary time scales and from the nano to the macro length scales. Over 25% of speakers will be chosen from submitted abstracts and flash talks will be selected from poster presenters.

We would love to welcome you to the University of Nottingham. So please join us for this very special event.

8th NovAliX Conference

June 15 - June 17, 2020
Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Biophysics in Drug Discovery 2020 | US Edition

Developing the Synergy between Biophysics and Medicinal Chemistry to Deliver Better Drugs

The eighth edition of the conference intends again to bring together biophysicists and medicinal chemists, the synergy between their disciplines being key to deliver better drugs on a shorter timeline.

Membrane Protein Expression, Purification and Characterization (mPEPC2)

September 7 - September 14, 2020
Hamburg, Germany

Integral membrane proteins (IMPs) are encoded by 20-30% of all open reading frames and provide key functions in the cell. Due to their hydrophobic nature, they are more difficult to study and structural information is lagging far behind their soluble counterparts. This EMBO Practical Course trains PhD students and early career postdocs with the latest developments in membrane protein production, characterization and structure determination methods. Modern protein expression techniques in various hosts will be presented and students will get acquainted with state-of-the-art approaches for studying structural and dynamic aspects of membrane proteins. An attitude to combine protein purification and characterization will be taught to impress the necessity on the students that proteins have to be conditioned with care to achieve structural information. The presence of a crystallization and cryo-EM facility as well as beamlines for SAXS and macromolecular crystallography at the venue will be employed to perform integrated structural biology experiments. The course has an emphasis on practicals in small groups, and a \"Meet the scientist\" session at the beginning of the course will ensure a close interaction between students and tutors. The aim is to inspire the students to apply the newly acquired knowledge and to maintain interactions among themselves and the tutors afterwards.

Accepted students are encouraged to bring their own samples (frozen state) for quality control, crystallization and negative stain EM. Precise shipment conditions and information will be provided to the selected applicants.

Application deadline: 15 June 2020

Looking forward to receiving your applications!

8th Murnau Conference on Structural Biology 2020

September 16 - September 19, 2020
Murnau, Germany

The Murnau Conference on Structural Biology is the biannual meeting of the study group Structural Biology of the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM), taking place in the beautiful scenery of the Alpine foothills of Bavaria.

During three days in September of 2020, established leaders of the field and younger scientists will come together for discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. Besides lectures given by invited speakers, there is room for additional oral presentations and posters. Industry exhibitions and social events further complement the program.
